The smallest player in Bank of America Stadium’s making the biggest plays.
Houston return specialist Trindon Holliday, all (alleged) 5-foot-5 and 170 pounds of him, has been the brightest star on the field.
He took a kickoff back 90 yards for a touchdown, and then took his next try (from 7 yards deep in the end zone) for 36 yards.
The LSU product has plenty of speed, but he hasn’t been able to stick so far. After being stashed on IR as a rookie, he was cut from the practice squad last year. If he keeps this up, they’ll have to find a spot for him.
Granted, the Panthers special teams may stink, but he’s provided the only flash so far in this game.
